UW School of Oceanography graduate students must select the option in which they pursue their degrees. For each option, the student must complete prescribed courses (click on the link for an option), attend the weekly seminar, and complete advanced coursework. There are four options, Biological Oceanography, Chemical Oceanography, Marine Geology & Geophysics, and Physical Oceanography. The program offers a thesis or non-thesis Master's degree which can be earned on the way to a student's Ph.D. in Oceanography.

There are some great Academic Opportunities for our Graduate Students to add to your Oceanography degree.
